We've got a nice mix of soccer in the second week of October between club soccer and World Cup qualifying, and the action on the pitch is going to be intense for sure. On Tuesday, South American, European and Asian teams are all going to be qualifying, while the United States even plays in a friendly match against New Zealand.
When it comes time to get to the weekend, there is a full complement of club soccer to take in, including a few really big matchups in England. Below are some of the biggest matchups of the week for bettors to take in.
United States vs. New Zealand, Tuesday 8 p.m. ET ( ESPN )
The Stars and Stripes only have one last game to get ready for the Hexagonal, the last stage of World Cup qualification, and that first match against Mexico in Columbus is going to be a massive, massive game. This duel against New Zealand isn't going to be a huge challenge in theory, but it should be a good display for some of the younger players on the squad. Jurgen Klinsmann's side looked good in a 2-0 win over Cuba, and this should be another emphatic triumph.
Slovenia vs. England, Tuesday 2:45 p.m. ET ( ESPN2 )
England has six points from two matches in Group F of World Cup qualifying, and if there's a big tripping point in this group, this is where it's going to come. The Three Lions have a tough road test at Slovenia, a team that was in the World Cup in 2010 and just missed out in 2014. England is a relatively big favorite at -149 on the road, but this isn't a slam dunk three points. It's a lot more valuable of a game for Slovenia than England though, as the Brits shouldn't have an issue ultimately winning this group.
Chelsea vs. Leicester City, Saturday 7:30 a.m. ET ( NBC Sports Network )
The Blues haven't had a terrible start to the season, but they really need to get a move on and not punt games like this one if they want to be serious Premier League title contenders. Leicester City clearly isn't going to win the EPL again this year, but can this team ultimately contend for a Top 4 spot? Again, winning matches like this will be a huge boost. The Foxes have yet to win a game away from home, getting outscored 10-3 in three away matches domestically, and this isn't really a good spot for them either. Chelsea is a one-goal favorite on the Asian Handicap, translating into a -170 favorite on the moneyline.
Liverpool vs. Manchester United, Monday 3 p.m. ET ( NBC Sports Network )
The biggest match in England in Match Day 8 is the final fixture. Liverpool and Manchester United are both outsiders from the top of the table, but it's not like either one is all that far behind Man City atop the league. Liverpool is 5-1-1 and has scored a league-best 18 goals in seven matches, while Man United has been reasonable at 4-1-2. The Red Devils have been marginal at best in their last two matches against Stoke City and FC Zorya Luhansk, and they're going to be up against it on the road in Anfield. The Reds are +101 favorites, essentially making it a 50/50 proposition whether they get three points from this matchup or don't.
